Everyone knows the 1984 Macintosh computer was a game changer for the tech industry. But why was this particular computer so iconic? I learn how Steve Jobs and his team took on computer giants IBM, changing personal computing forever. Living legend Bill Nye the Science Guy joins me to play Asteroids on an original Macintosh. And fellow ITsuns creator and Apple expert iJustine explains why the 1984 Macintosh was able to beat its competitors.

    Now, Marques that was a great video. It brought back so many memories. I started out with one of those gray Radio Shack computers you showed as well as an Apple ][ and a Commodore 64. Soon after that I upgraded to a Radio Shack TRS - 80. Eventually I bought an Apple IIc and at a national conference on computers in education I was loaned one of the Compaq computers that you showed. It was very heavy and difficult to use. Later on I bought a Macintosh SE as an upgrade to my Apple IIc. When Radio Shack introduced their IBM clones I won three of them in a grant. I used them for work and eventually upgraded one of them to a Dell Windows computer. After having several Dells and some other brand Windows machines I switched back to an iMac when they came out with the aluminum case in 2007. That one was upgraded in late 2015 to a 27 inch 5K Retina display. That’s my current Mac. I can’t wait for the new larger screen iMac to come. It sounds like they will be fantastic.

    You don't mention the BBC Micro Model B, popular in Britain in the early 80s. It was heavily used in education and linked to TV shows. Many people learned to program it. It was made by the British company Acorn, which designed the ARM processor used in virtually all smartphones, and soon to be in all Macs.

    When I went to college in the 80’s no one had a computer. Everyone typed out their papers on typewriters. Some had the fancy dot matrix typewriters with a 2 inch long screen that could only show a few words at a time, so you’d have to scroll though the whole paper. The only computers available were in the computer lab that had 30 Macintosh’s and you’d have to remember to bring your floppy drive to use it. If you forgot you’d have to trudge back to the dorm. Students now have it so easy!

    I just love Apple, it made my childhood. I work in IT and my first experience with a computer at all was an Apple and was one of the early beige Macintoshes in elementary school (I want to say the Macintosh IIGS, but I can't be sure. All I know is it was something setup similarly with peripherals and drives). The need to upgrade was much slower back then, so although the Mac I used heavily in elementary school was made in the 80s, by the time I was there it was the very early 90s and still considered new tech and cutting edge/latest and greatest. I remember treasure math storm, kid pix, and learned how to use real floppy discs, etc. There were so many great experiences using that computer. I was never able to actually get an Apple computer till I was an adult because of how extremely expensive they were even back then. My parents could completely afford it, but it is understandably ridiculous for any parent to buy their kid an $1800+ computer, and much more so back then. I still always admired and marveled at my experience with one and all of the things that were being worked on and released by them growing up, just to be around it. Also, once again after Steve Jobs had returned to breathe back that old classic life into Apple, which by then, I was moving from a pre-teen into my teens. Then it became a whole new classic era for Apple once again.

    This was my childhood computer. Great review. For whatever it’s worth, when you want to exit a program like Asteroids that has taken the whole screen, hold the Apple key and hit “Q” for Quit. Also when you reboot the computer you can hold the mouse button during the boot sequence to eject the disk. Finally, the paper clip eject should only be performed when the power is off for fear of the disk write-head damaging the data. I would love to see a review of the Newton. That was way ahead of its time.

    That Mac was my first computer I touched in my life in 6th grade. My computer class teacher taught us how to use floppy disk and how to write code "Hello World." It was the best!!! Also I was 3 or 4 when they released Atari tennis. It was my first video game console. I am blessed. Oh and I use to have pay a quarter to play games at arcades, 7 elevens, and anywhere I could find Donkey Kong, Qbert, Mario Bros. The best of times. And now I make video games. I love technology.

    The Fact you could carry it to a modern coffee shop and have that idea make sense is EXACTLY because Steve insisted the computers would have a handle and be mobile. That meant they were built to get knocked around a little bit, with cable connections that could be undone and redone easily.The "other" computers were made to sit carefully on a shelf, or locked in a cabinet where nobody could touch it and bump a connection loose. The simple fact that it is understandable to you, is because that future vision is now the industry standard. I would like to see you unbox and try to operate that Tandy or some ISA standard beige box on DOS 3.3 ... LOL

The Motorola processor chip is what happened ... and then, fast forward to the post 9/11 days, and Motorola showed up at Apple and took back all their development chips ... the next PowerPC chip wasn't available for Apple anymore, and then forward a couple years or so, and Steve said Intel made them an offer they could not refuse.
